by reading the official samba documentation, i understand that i can apply a group policy by using poledit.exe tool in windows and save policy to a file NTConfig.POL then move this file to the samba server, put it in the path of netlogon
in /etc/samba/smb.conf
to be:

path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
writable = no
browsable = no

and the path /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon will contain the policy file NTConfig.POL

but the problem now is that policy will be applied for all users that login to this domain controller, How can i apply different
policies for different groups??

I would also like to know how to apply group policies per group using Samba. Does anyone know of a good tutorial? The official SAMBA howto seemed a bit brief when it came to this.
